The league is allowing only one Thursday game per team. Since The Texans are on Thanksgiving at Detroit, no TNF games.

I'm ok with the schedule, but, not crazy about having so many primetime away games. BUT, I guess this will either make us or break us. If we can't win on the road, then we don't stand a chance of making it to NO in Feb. Jets, Bears, Lions, and Pats. All could be playoff teams.
eff that if we cant win when everyone is watching we will be one and done if we even make the playoffs.

Don't play Indy until late in the season, don't like that at all. Gives Luck more time to figure things out. That being said, we should still whoop em.

From a tailgating perspective, I'd rather have noon games. I like this schedule.

Default Re: 2012 Schedule

We face a lot of quality teams this year regardless of what the strength of schedule numbers would suggest. The numbers are skewed dramatically by the combined poor record of our division in last year's games. Correspondingly it is less effective as a rating or our non-division rivals this year.

Last year we faced these non-division opponents:
MIA, NO, PIT, OAK, BAL, CLE, TB, ATL, CIN and CAR

This year we face:
MIA, DEN, NYJ, GB, BAL, BUF, CHI, DET, NE and MIN

Make no mistake, this is a tough schedule with at least 7 playoff teams or contenders. Still, there's no reason the Texans can't beat any of these teams.

3:00 is better for me with the Tailgaiting.

What do you think the Texans record will be?

I've got them losing to the Packers/Lions/Bears/New England/Denver and 1 division game for a 10-6 record.

Nonsense! We played well in our last two national tv games. Should have had a 3rd, except for Jacoby Jones muffing a punt against the Ravens.

It can actually be considered a bigger sign of respect to get away primetime games. Smaller name teams usually get one game, at home, because that's where they are most likely to be competitive.
The networks are basically trusting us to be in all of these tough road games when they pick them for a prime time slot.

In the grand scheme of things, it doesn't mean anything, but it sure does show how far we've come.

Big key to the season is getting off to a strong start with the running game. The Texans should really lean on Foster and Tate until Schaub gets his rhythm back. Also, it should be easier for the right side of the o-line to gel in run blocking than pass blocking. Jump out to a 3-1, possibly 4-0 start and let the momentum take over.

Unfortunately, the one home game prime time game is against Green Bay... That said, it sucks because so many people will sell their seats to Packers fans so that if it's a 60% to 40% Texans fan v. Pack fan the Texans are doing well.....


PATHETIC!!! (Pointed at you parasitic ****ing maggots that sell your tickets for a profit)!!! Then again, most that do that are "carpet-baggers" to begin with.

I would be pi$$ed if on our first SNF on NBC game, Reliant was full of Pecker fans. Was it that way the last time we played them? The MNF game on ESPN.

And the Bye is between the three consecutive home games... So, that's a month at home. Pretty nice middle of the season situation... Then, during the three game road trip we have more than a week to prepare for two of those three games.

I would've liked two primetime games at home. Still, this is a good schedule for the Texans and the fan base.
